Sonic Seniors

The Young@Heart Chorus are a choir of senior citizens from a sheltered housing project. They do awesome covers of classic rock tracks, seemingly chosen to ironically challenge stereotypes of the elderly (e.g. Coldplay’s Fix You).

YouTube has a video of them doing a cover of Sonic Youth’s Schizophrenia.

The audience looks a bit taken aback but the choir is gutsy and the version inspired.

They’ve got a live gig on April 17th at Dartmouth College. Don’t miss it if you get the chance.
